Released in June 2007, Stern Pinball developed a Spider-Man pinball machine that encompasses all three Spider-Man theatrical releases (in turn based on prior comics and television series).

Game details[edit]

Your goal[1] is to defeat the villains from all three movies: Green Goblin from Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man 2, Sandman and Venom from Spider-Man 3. Once you defeat all four villains, you'll experience Battle Royale!


There are detailed, vibrant toys of each of the four villains on the playfield[2][3][4][5] with an associated shot:

  • Doctor Octopus' magnet that simulates a "Fusion Malfunction" by holding the ball.
  • Green Goblin hovering on his glider above Pumpkin Bomb targets.
  • Venom's ramp that quickly feeds the ball back to the left flipper.
  • Sandman's whirlwind of targets and a motor 3-bank at the center of the playfield; and a whole lot of amazing multi-ball action.

J. K. Simmons, the actor who played J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man movies also recorded additional lines of custom speech appropriate for the pinball game, such as "Extra ball", "Jackpot", and "Hey, kid, you just won a free game."


This machine is designed by Steve Ritchie[6] and programmed by Lyman Sheats.
